The CD/DVD/BD burning application Xfburn has been updated to use the GTK+3 toolkit. There's also some minor code modernization under the hood. There's also a lot of translation updates in this latest version of the Xfce desktop's tool for writing data to ancient round storage-media.

Xfburn version 0.5.5 using GTK+2.. The latest version has been updated to use GTK+3.

For those unfamiliar with the round optical storage discs xfburn is for: CD/DVD/BD discs are what grandpa's coffee cop holder is supposed to be used for. CD discs hold about 700 MB of data, DVDs hold 4.5 GB and BlueRay (BD) discs can hold a whole lot more. Xfburn can be used to read and write these ancient and wildly outdated data storage discs using the 5.25" coffee cop holder found on really old computers. If you have a two decades old computer and you are able to find optical storage discs on a dusty shelf a store somewhere then the new version of xfburn may be for you.

The coffee cop holder trays that pop out of old computer towers are actually for reading and writing data using ancient storage discs.
